The fact that the United States is not accountable to the International Criminal Court is in itself an insult to justice. Prancing about telling others what to do yet committing travesty after travesty.

"press play", "quiet" etc were amazing episode. this "Clint Smith" episode is no different from other interview shows.. sorry to sound discouraging, but I love TED radio hour to be TED radio hour, with guy or manu.

I looked up more information about things you have done online and noticed you have a post (All things wildly considered: “No mistakes” - God Created Adam and Eve and intersex individuals.) I think your amazing. Your shining a light on biological diversity. I grew up Mormon and since have grown away from denominations to develop my own individual walk towards a “New Heaven” or way to bring God inside my soul. I think man was originally meant to be Angels, so I considered you fortunate and mentally better suited to be without judgments. Thank you Emily Quinn, sincerely Vaniar Lander.
